While a writer intends to have one's work officially published by someone else, say, an expert editor at a specific location, she/he certainly will look at names, categories, and requirements or deadlines so that her/his work is submitted effectively, at times, a "matchmaker" who can help negotiate would do much better Job...
Here is a list of the publishers I used to contact with, they publish children's books, young adult fictions, or adult novels, many have detailed descriptions, I honor them because they were my choice in shaping my writing trying to obtain their approval, the results are not important, but the process is rewarding, most of the editors are friendly, politely, and encouraging in gentle ways.
